How to Make Fabric Flowers and Use Them in Your Home Decor

Monday, October 10th, 2011

Welcome to Episode 2! Since we are twins, we thought it would be fun to take on a segment we’d like to call, “The Double-Take Challenge!” The idea is that each of us would come up with our own project that involved 2 things. What are those 2 things this week? Fabric flowers and home decor. Take a look at what each one of us made…and you can make them, too! And of course, we’d like to know what “your take” is on fabric flowers and home decor. Post on our Facebook page or here on on our blog.
